Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered if it's possible to break free from the vicious cycle of psychological abuse forever?

Being involved with an abusive person can be a nightmarish journey. Going down that path will open your eyes to how people really are, how broken our society is, and most of all, you’ll learn a lot about your force of will and spirit. 

A lot of people that are currently suffering from abuse aren’t even aware that they’re being a victim. These sufferers have no idea that abuse is taking place right under their noses. Sometimes, the perpetrators are individuals that would never be suspected of being a toxic person. The concealed nature of abuse is what makes it cause so much damage over the long term if it is never put to a stop. 

Here's some of what you can expect to learn:

  • How to identify the red flags of psychological abuse and how to completely break free of it.
  • Learn how to properly set boundaries with abusive people so that your rights and needs are respected.
  • A practical, step-by-step program designed to take you from abused to survivor while minimizing the damage.
  • How to stay away from the abusive individual over the long term and what to do in case of a relapse.
  • And much more...

This book will educate you on the signs of psychological abuse. You will learn how to recognize the characteristics of potential abusers and where these people might be hiding in your life.

You will know exactly which course of action to take in case you ever find yourself in a psychologically abusive relationship. 

You will also learn all about the stages of recovery from psychological abuse and what course of action to take in case there is a relapse. 

This guide will give you the necessary tools needed to escape the vicious cycle of abuse or at least help you identify the warning signs of toxic people, so you never find yourself in this highly undesirable situation.

Start taking back control of your life today!

Great purchase

This book improved my view beyond words, for the better. Having been a young prosperous guy brought down by such a supernatural being is still difficult for me to grasp to this day.

For a change.

Now I am ready to kick those toxic people out of my life. With the step-by-step program offered, one can easily break from psychological abuse and be healed completely. Although I wouldn’t say everything’s easy. No, patience and commitment are required. But knowing we have a reliable guide we can lean on makes it feel better, right?

Lots of info. on psychological abuse.

How to become from victim to survivor? Better delve into this. This helpful guide isn’t only applicable in marriage. Providing psychological healing, it goes hand in hand with emotional abuse. Jonathan Costas has it. I’ll make sure I’ll hear it, too.

Helpful than the others.

I went to 3 professionals already, but they weren’t able to help me. I finally gave up and lived with it for years. I thought I was already healed, but it was just hidden. This Psychological Abuse book is not perfect, but most of the insights turned out to be valuable. It is assisting me as I start with my recovery process. Simplified and considerate-that is what this book is all about!

Outlined my experience in detail almost from beginning to end. Very helpful in the healing process! It helped me feel supported/not so alone...and to educate me about the nightmare of a relationship I had just experienced and nearly hated myself for having endured for as long as I did.

Very insightful

This book has also given me insight and confidence, to be able to cope with the necessary communications required when children are involved in a separation, and has taken the anxiety out of the meetings as i now understand how he operates and the games he plays, that I will no longer be drawn into the self doubt etc that he projects back into my life.

Loved this audible

Loved this book, it was very healing after escaping from a relation with a sociopath. It was very enlightening and empowering to listen the entire process of how a sociopaths mind works and the author does a very good job of reaffirming the listener and helping start the healing process. This has definitely contributed greatly to my recovery

Contained practical information

This book was clearly written and understandable. It pointed out many things that were so true of psychopaths and made me realize what I perceived as a psychopathic relationship was a very real thing. The positive reinforcement throughout the book helped me know there is an end to the abuse if you distance yourself from the abuser and to know you can survive on your own. Loved it! Want my daughter to listen it too! Thank you.

Complete guide

The most positive thing that happened to me was a psychopath when I fell apart completely after a 10 year ordeal of what I knew. Difficult to put into words how much this book helped me — my outlook on my future changed my life completely and it was so descriptive of this nightmare person and so easy to listen well written.

Saved my life!

This book literally saved my life. I was given this book by a counselor and it was like listening my own experiences word for word. I was able to see the truth and get myself out of a very dangerous relationship. I will forever be indebted to this author and its publisher for the knowledge this book gave me to move on. Thank you!!!
